Surviving Mars: Strategy & Tips

Surviving Mars: Strategy & Tips

Surviving Mars is a fantastic real-time strategy and resource management video game. It's a modern Sim City except your mission is to colonize and terraform Mars! Difficulty can be customized for each scenario and a random mystery drives the storyline. It's got full controller support which is hard to come by in a RTS game—which I love because I can enjoy it from the comfort of my couch.

For many scenarios this game can be brutally difficult, which is why I've compiled a short list of strategies and tips that I have learned from hundreds of hours of game-play.

As you grow closer to the amazingly detailed characters, their struggles, and their immaculately crafted unique personalities, you'll get lost in this vast fantasy world.

CSV Graphing App

CSV Graphing App

Graph App is a tool for tagging and filtering data points. Data points require a date and an amount which are plotted on the X and Y axis respectively. Points may be assigned an optional type. Data types can be associated to one or many tags, allowing the data set to be grouped and visualized in multiple ways. Tags can be toggled on or off to compare different subsets of data and the data set can be filtered by date ranges.

The app is written in JavaScript, runs in your web browser, and renders an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) visualizer on the fly. Data can be added and edited manually in the app or a CSV (Comma-separated values) file containing the appropriate column headers can be imported. Data sets and tag assignments can also be exported as CSV files for storage and re-imported later. The app and all imported and exported data runs exclusively in your local web browser.

The Long Dark Survival Tips

The Long Dark Survival Tips

"So... cold..."

Keep dying in The Long Dark? Don't feel bad. I did. Especially after I decided Interloper mode was the perfect challenge for me. I love this game. It is meditative, brutal, beautiful, and addicting. There is only one goal in survival mode. How long can you stay alive? Until your last match? Until a wolf inevitably ambushes you? Or maybe you stumbled on a sleeping bear? It's likely you'll die of exposure to the elements or lack of food or water.

One thing to always remember in The Long Dark is each tiny decision can be critical to life or death. Should you repair a jacket you found to increase your warmth bonus? Or is that time better spent foraging for food? The more you play The Long Dark the better you'll get at identifying the game's subtle and brilliant mechanics, helping you make those tricky decisions.

Amazing Science Fiction Films You Should Watch

Amazing Science Fiction Films You Should Watch

Make some popcorn and dim the lights before buckling down for another adventure into the great unknown. Will the future be ruled by a tyrant robot lord? Or perhaps a race of ultra advanced humanoids? Don't fret because a lone savior will defend humanity at the cost of personal sacrifice.

Here is a list of my favorite science fiction films. Forget teen boys riding flying bikes with awkward cuddly aliens. I want blood thirsty monsters and seductress doppelgängers! A good science fiction film better have laser gun battles, cryogen space travel, or witty techno-babble.

D&D Dungeon Master Screen

AD&D House Rules

Dungeon Masters often weave their own house rules into game play. Unlike almost every other board game, the Dungeon Master's guide actually encourages the DM to tweak, change, add, remove, bypass, or ignore any and every rule in the book they feel has a good reason to be modified. This is the genius behind D&D. It is not restricted by traditional board-game limitations. Here I've collected some of the custom house rules I usually game with.
